1863 - Gen. Edward F. Beale loans money to A.A. Hudson and Oliver P. Robbins to erect toll house in Newhall Pass [story]


The Building Industry Association of Southern California Inc., representing more than 1,000 member businesses involved in the homebuilding industry, has announced the appointment of Mark Knorringa as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Knorringa, 61, has worked in the industry for more than 35 years as a builder, developer and association executive. Most recently, he has been the Executive Officer of the Riverside County Chapter since 2008 and was named BIASC’s Executive Officer of Year in 2010.

“Strong leadership and member involvement are critical as BIASC continues to fight for homeownership and the professionals that work hard every day to deliver the American Dream,” said Bob Yoder, President of the Southern California Division of Shea Homes and this year’s BIASC President.

“Mark has a unique perspective given his breadth of experience in Southern California. He understands the business and the impacts that legislation and regulations have on members, and he has the organizational skills we need to continue providing members with valuable programs and services.”

Knorringa succeeds Holly Schroeder, who served as BIASC’s interim CEO since January but preferred to continue serving as the executive officer of its Los Angeles/Ventura Chapter.

“Holly deftly managed the restructuring of the Association’s dues, governance and budgeting process, and we are grateful for all that she has accomplished during what has been a very challenging time for our industry,” Yoder said.

Knorringa is a longtime leader in Southern California’s homebuilding and community development industry. His real estate expertise includes oversight of large-scale master-planned community infrastructure installation; entitlements; and the development of several all-suite hotel projects and residential subdivisions.

“I’m honored to have been asked to take on this new challenge, especially during these unprecedented economic times,” Knorringa said. “For many years, the BIA has forged great alliances with local government and community leaders. Holly Schroeder has achieved great results, and I’m committed to working with our members and staff to sustain our momentum. I look forward to furthering relationships and achieving tremendous results on behalf of the men and women of the building industry and most importantly for the economic benefit of our region.”

Before becoming the Riverside County Chapter’s Executive Officer, Knorringa was a long-time BIA volunteer, serving for two terms as the Chapter’s President as well as Vice President of Governmental Affairs for BIASC. Prior to becoming the Chapter Executive Officer, Knorringa was Director of Development for Oak Valley Partners. In that capacity, he managed all phases of the Oak Valley master-planned community in Beaumont and Calimesa, including entitlements, annexations, environmental review, development and construction.

He lives in Corona del Mar with his wife, Katchen.

 

BIASC and its four chapters – Los Angeles/Ventura, Orange County, Riverside County and Baldy View – represent the homebuilding industry throughout Los Angeles, Ventura, southeast Kern, Orange, Riverside, Imperial and San Bernardino counties.
